ADVENT at INCARNATION
Join us as we enter this season of anticipation together
November 27 - December 24
ADVENT PRAYER STATIONS
SUNDAYS IN ADVENT, 9:30-10am
Each week before the Sunday service, we will offer self-guided contemplative prayer stations in Room 102 (the Art Room) at Randolph Elementary. Come early for a quiet pre-service prayer retreat. We will also provide materials to guide prayer for this year's Advent offering recipient, Partners, working in the Al Hol refugee camp in Syria.
FEAST OF SAINT NICHOLAS
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4
9:30-10am SAINT NICHOLAS VISIT
11:15am CHRISTMAS POTLUCK AND NATIVITY SHOW-AND-TELL
This is our final visit from Bishop John before his retirement, and it falls just before the Feast of Saint Nicholas. Everyone of all ages is welcome before the service to make pomanders and hear the story of Saint Nicholas, the 4th century Bishop of Myra, Turkey. During the service, our Bishop will confirm people (learn more about confirmation). Bring a favorite nativity and a Christmas dish for an after-church potluck to bid our Bishop a jolly farewell!
"THIS WEARY WORLD"
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 9:30am-12pm
Join us for an Advent mini-retreat exploring change, loss, lament, and hope led by the Rev. Erin Bair. The past few years have left us all a little weary, and this mini-retreat will provide space for rest and reflection. Come at 9:30am for warm drinks and conversation; content begins at 10am. Signup below to receive location details.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 3:30pm AT GREENBRIER BAPTIST
We will begin our worship indoors with joyful carols, a children's mini-pageant, candlelight, and communion as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Then we'll head outside for hot drinks, cookies, and carols around the fire. Bring cookies to share!
There will not be childcare at this service. Coloring materials will be provided, as well as areas for little ones who need a break or space to wiggle.
Please note: This service is at Greenbrier Baptist (5401 7th Rd S), NOT at Randolph Elementary! This service will NOT be available on Zoom, but will be recorded and posted to YouTube afterward.
